The Cleveland Institute of Art actually looks like the cool Bauhaus building it was intended to be.  We need more RED in this grey, windswept city!!!

Stop whining

Just want to go on the record for wishing Clevelanders would just start having an attitude.  This is a great liveable city.  Kudos to the Emerging Cleveland website, Jason Therrien/Thundertech and all the creative minds that just do it and get on with it.

Dia de los Muertos

Last year's event was absolutely magical.  I felt like I was visiting a Mexican village.  The parade of skeletons was phenomenal and great for kids!  Parade starts at 5 p.m.

Daily Struggle

So much pain in the world.   The swirling hellishness of these past three weeks brings only one realization--Be an agent of creation not destruction.   The human condition is torn between these two forces.  It is easy to destroy, but not to create.  Do not give up. CREATE.

I am reposting this because we are going to start having great weather again and that means NOISE in the City.  (I also did not know what I was doing here at first so the title thing eluded me). I know that City Council retooled the city ordinances so the police can fine our residents who destroy the peace.   Then, I was told by a 2nd district police officer that our judges throw out a lot of these cases as prejudicial.  If this is the case, then I want to know the names of these judges.   We have a long way to go in terms of civility whether we live in the city or in the suburbs.  We are being mechanized and sitting here in front of my computer doesn't help.  I don't mind hearing kids laugh and skate board and play in my neighborhood.  I just don't want to hear their machines....Rest in peace John and Masumi.
